Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (clavicle) will not return from the Reserve/Injured list, head coach Frank Reich confirmed. Tests revealed that the wide receiver's surgically-repaired clavicle will not be 100 percent healed by the time the team faced its Wednesday, Dec. 4 deadline to decide whether to return to him to the active roster or revert him to IR for the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Funchess posted just three receptions for 32 yards in his only appearance of the season for the Colts back in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers. The veteran is still just 25 years old, so he has plenty of time to make an impact in the league. It just won't be in 2019.

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (collarbone) is not expected to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list before the deadline Wednesday, Dec. 4, meaning that he will be ineligible to play again this season, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Funchess is recovering from a fractured collarbone but he hasn't healed enough because the plate inserted into the break did not work as well as hoped. With T.Y. Hilton (calf) also sidelined at the moment, the Colts are very thin at the wide receiver position, with oft-injured Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers making shaky flex options for deeper fantasy formats.

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (clavicle) won't return to the field in Week 13, according to head coach Frank Reich Wednesday, Nov. 27. The window for the Colts to add Funchess to the active roster from the Reserve/Injured list expires Wednesday, Dec. 4, at which point he'll be shut down for the season if not activated. 'He's not going to make it this week, not because of anything we've learned in the last couple of days,' Reich said. '... We've had no setbacks, there's been nothing negative, the reality is from where we've got to be and where we need to be, he won't make it there on Sunday.'
Huddle Up: The Colts could sure use him, especially if they have hopes of making some noise in the playoffs. WRs T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell have both battled injuries, while Zach Pascal and Chester Rogers haven't been able to step up as consistent contributors.

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (collarbone) has not yet been activated from the Reserve/Injured list, so it is extremely unlikely he plays in Week 12 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Funchess hasn't shed his non-contact jersey, and the team is unlikely to rush him and risk aggravating his injury. Fantasy owners will want to see him officially return and knock off the rust, making it through a full game without any setbacks. Unfortunately for most owners, time is running out for that to happen in the fantasy regular season.

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (clavicle) has returned this week to put in limited work in practice, but isn't likely to play Sunday, Nov. 17. '(The) bone has gotta heal,' Funchess said Thursday, Nov. 14, of his broken collarbone suffered in the season opener.
Huddle Up: The Colts, with their banged-up WR corps, and some deeper-league fantasy owners could use Funchess right now, but don't expect him back for a couple of weeks by most indications.

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (clavicle) was able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 13 for the first time since the regular-season opener. He is eligible to return in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but his rehab has lingered. He wore a red non-contact jersey on Wednesday, so being exposed to contact is the remaining hurdle for him before he is cleared to play. '(Funchess) has to get certain things done and scans done to make sure he's fully cleared and ready to go,' head coach Frank Reich said.
Huddle Up: Funchess is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues down the stretch, although the window for other Indy receivers not named T.Y. Hilton to shine might be closing. The latter did not practice Wednesday, but is inching closer to a return.

Indianapolis Colts WR Devin Funchess (shoulder) is expected to participate in practice this week.
Huddle Up: Funchess probably is a few weeks away from returning to the lineup but should be at least a limited participant during practice this week. He should have some fantasy value when he returns and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option.
